2015 Annual Cycling for Seafarers – Raises Funds & Awareness

Cycling for Seafarers

The Mission to Seafarers Vancouver once again held their annual Cycling for Seafarers event and photographer Dave Roels was there to capture the fun. Starting from the Flying Angel Mission on Waterfront Road in Vancouver, industry participants chose either a 40km or 100km route. The shorter ride ended at Seaspan Marine in North Vancouver where Seaspan tugs and yachts from the RVYC returned cyclists to the Main Street Docks. The longer route headed off to Steveston and back to the Mission where they joined the others for a BBQ.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
